Ok , I guess I used to have ocd , but now it's different , no compulsions , but my mind still has disturbing thoughts , it never shuts up , in most daily situations I truly believe I am a.) talking out loud but Im tricking myself into thinking im saying it in my head (basicly o believe I have Terrets but I can't see my mouth move) b.) it's like the Truman show but there's a mind reading thing that amplifys my thoughts ,
I also have always believed my teddy bear is real , I talk to my reflection , I get so upset over mean people , if someone even says something that offends me I will be sad over it for ever , well I've been sad over things up until my age now , will I still be sad over it in the future , I don't know , someone says something mean, and I get so Sad and it's all I think about and I just get so frustrated , As I find it painfull to socialise I can't just tell these people that they offende me , I just ignore them and suffer in silence , I know I have social anxiety , considering Have no friends in school . But what's with the whole mind thing , I feel depressed as well but I don't know if it's depression or just te fact all my life I've found it very frustrating, as a result ive just been sad all my life. Do I have ocd without the C ,

We can't diagnose you here but we can listen and possibly offer some advice. It feels like you're taking on a lot and obviously feel frustrated and probably confused with what you are experiencing.

Have you spoken to your family about how you're feeling? If you don't feel able to, is there anyone at your school (school counsellor or therapist) who you could share your worries with?

yes there is , I looked on the college website but the stuff written on there was all about help with school work and extra support with school work if you had mental health issues , I don't know if they help with the actual issues , so I'm not too sure about that , but thanks anyway :)

I think that what you describe sounds more like an anxiety disorder than OCD.
Of course - I can't diagnose you. I have absolutely zero medical training, as is the case with most people on the forum.
The best place to start would be to visit your GP and tell them about these thoughts that are troubling you.
I have noticed in a previous thread that you have mentioned you wouldn't like to tell your family about this...
Is there something about the way your parents act that make you think they wouldn't support you?
Having these kind of thoughts and feelings are not your fault and they are nothing to be ashamed of.

It may be that your GP can prescribe medication or refer you to a mental health team so you can get more specialised help.
I understand that speaking out about how you feel might seem a bit scary, but you really shouldn't be suffering alone.

I totally agree with Somerset's advice. Your GP would be a good start and will be able to talk things through with you. You really don't need to suffer alone. There's help available and, although the thought of talking to someone might seem daunting, it does get easier.
